. >> charlie: welcome to the broadcast. we're live tonight from london, new york and washington. earlier this evening, president obama delivered his first state of the union address before joint session of congress. the economy was the major focus of tonight's speech. the president outlined various proposals to create jobs and tackle the growing deficit. addressing the debate on healthcare, he reaffirmed his commitment to comprehensive reform. >> the longer it was debated more depull became skeptical. i know with all the lobbying and horse trading the process left most americans wondering what's in it for me. but i also know this problem is not going away. by the time i'm finished speaking tonight, more americans will have lost their health insurance. millions will lose it this year. our deficit will grow. premiums will go up. patients will be denied the care they need. small business owners will continue to drop coverage altogether. i will not walk away from these americans, and neither should the people in this chamber.
